Are you familiar with Here We Grow Again? Twice a year, they hold a kids' consignment sale at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex in Danville, and this year's Spring Sale is April 13-16.
They're going to have over 90,000 clothing items, toys, furniture and other kids' items for sale that will save shoppers a ton of money. It's a huge event that Villagers should definitely make a point of experiencing!
Wouldn't it be cool to be able to shop the Here We Grow Again Spring 2016 Sale the day before it's opened to the public? Oh yeah. All the best stuff still there, ripe for the purchasing!
Well, I have three passes to give away to the Here We Grow Again Spring 2016 pre-sale that will take place on Tuesday, April 12, from 4 to 8 p.m.! We're going to do a little online Easter egg hunt every day on March 21, 22 and 23!
Here's how it's going to work:
Did you know that aliens came to Indiana nearly 40 years ago?
According to a classic movie written and directed by Steven Spielberg in 1977, two airplanes had a close encounter of the first kind (a sighting) with a UFO over Indianapolis, and Hoosiers had a close encounter of the second kind (physical evidence) with an alien craft in Muncie shortly thereafter.
On Thursday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Theater in Danville, aliens return to Indiana when the Kiwanis Club of Danville brings us "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" in its latest installment of Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night.
For some Villagers, there's no place like home for Spring Break.
If you're staying home, make plans to attend the tenth edition of Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night on Thursday, April 2 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Theater in Danville.
The Kiwanis Club of Danville will be showing the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz" in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the movie's release.
Admission is just $3 per adult and $1 per child under the age of 12, with all proceeds from ticket sales benefiting the Kiwanis Club of Danville.
Welcoming and entertaining more than 4,000 visitors over two days last year, the first-ever Mayberry in the Midwest proved to be a rousing success. Expecting more visitors in its second year, organizers want to do even more as they have added another day, more ticketed events and additional free activities to the zany fun that made last year’s festival so popular.
The quiet Hendricks County seat of Danville will transform again into the iconic 1960s fictional community that was home to Andy, Opie, Aunt Bee and Barney for the Mayberry in the Midwest festival May 15-17. Former cast members, amazing tribute artists and even Don Knotts’ real-life daughter, Karen Knotts, will take visitors on a journey inside their televisions to experience life in Mayberry.
While researching a blog post for Visit Hendricks County recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with the superintendent of Hendricks County Parks & Recreation, William Roche.
During our conversation, he enlightened me about some programs that Hendricks County Parks & Rec offers for schools and for Scouts.
While I was aware that they offer programs for Scouts, William explained that they have revamped their Scouting program.
I was completely clueless as to the programs offered to Hendricks County schools.
It all seemed like information that Villagers might like to know about, so pull up a chair.
An annual event in Danville is fast approaching: the Danville Elementary PTO Winter Festival. This year's event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 21 from 1-5 p.m. at Danville South Elementary School.
This is an event that my kids and I make a point to attend every year, as my kids always thoroughly enjoy the games and the bounce houses, and I enjoy the opportunity to see friends and meet new people while also learning about businesses and organizations within the community.
Plus, it raises funds for a great organization that further benefits OUR KIDS.
Looking for a place to find Santa Claus in Hendricks County this Christmas season?
Look no further.
If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Thirty years later, the answer is still the same: Ghostbusters!
The 30th Anniversary Edition of Ghostbusters will be on the big screen on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Theater in Danville for the eighth edition of Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night.
Have you heard of Hobson's Fun Farm in Rockville, Ind.? I hadn't until U.S. Family Guide alerted me to its existence just west of Hendricks County in Putnam County. It looks pretty cool.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a place designed for OUR KIDS with special needs to play organized sports on a playing surface that is conducive to all forms of mobility?
Thanks to the Optimist Miracle Movers, such a place is about to exist in Plainfield.
Located at the Al & Jan Barker Sports Complex, 451 S. Vestal Road in Plainfield, the new Optimist Miracle Movers Field is almost completed and is scheduled to open on Sept. 20.
Karen Cravotta, a pediatric physical therapist who coaches swimming through the Optimist Miracle Movers, was our guest speaker today at our Kiwanis Club of Danville meeting, and she enlightened all of us about this multi-year joint project spearheaded by the Town of Plainfield and the Optimist Club of Plainfield.
